For Notes client (as opposed to Web client):
I know tables claim to support fixed width column sizes, but in many respects they behave more like relative widths than fixed widths.  e.g. If the table width is 8" and a column width is specified as 2" then it really only occupies 25% of the available space whenever the space to display the table falls below 8".  If the window/frame is 4" wide my 2" column is reduced to 1" and my text is usually wrapping on every row of the table... UGLY!!!!
Previewing documents in a preview pane to the right (as per Notes 8 mail) or including a  form in a much smaller window as part of a composite application are two of several scenarios in which this can occur.  I suspect with the growth of composite applications in the post Notes 8 world such scenarios will become more common.  I would like to be able to control the widths of some columns in my table so that they remain fixed or never shrink to less than a nominated width.  Other columns would shrink to fit the available space (or perhaps scroll), much in the same was as NotesViews and Frames can be specified.

And when it is being implemented, please improve the table handling by the client altogether. And improve the handling in the designer (so you won't loose previous settings) as well.
